    Over priced over cooked: My shrimp and grits where no good at all grits not smooth gritty and shrimp overcooked there's a set price for brunch and 20 percent tax party or not... I will say it's a nice vibe and the appetizers and drinks was on point.... better customer service is needed and communication

    I love the food at this restaurant and keep going back for it, but the service is, politely, occassional at best. There are long waits between visits by a server.

    Love this place and it’s Downtown. The food and service are the best. I’m so happy they decided to open this restaurant here in Cleveland, it’s exactly what we needed. However they should stop switching their Happy Hour times. I get off work at 6:30 and it’s extremely hard to navigate with traffic, construction with the street being torn apart, and no decent parking. The band Hubb’s Groove play on Thursday evenings and they do an Awesome job, so the struggle is worth it. All of the waitresses are wonderful and have Great personalities. Would love to see you change the times back to the 8 o’clock hour. One last thing, lol the steak n cheese rolls as well as the shrimp deviled eggs are AMAZING!

    Food was excellent. Wait staff was terrific. Everyone was outgoing, friendly and responsive. But the wait! It took an hour and a half to receive our meals. Had we been on a schedule (to a show or some such), we would have had to leave before being eating.

    We made reservations for dinner before attending an Elton John concert. Our appetizers took about 1 hour to come out and after 2 hours we still had not gotten our entrees. We had to cancel our dinners to ensure we would make the concert on time. The Food that we had was great but service was incredibly slow and they add 20% gratuity to each bill.

    The food at House of Creole is absolutely delicious. Our table had the devilish eggs with shrimp and the egg rolls as appetizers. The creole mustard and spices in the eggs gave it just a wonderful kick and the egg rolls were hot and crispy. We then had the jambalaya, the crab cakes and the lamb chops. The jambalaya sauce was addictive and all the seafood was fresh and prepared wonderfully. The mixed drinks were also great - I particularly loved the Giving Me Life. The passion fruit flavor is awesome. The atmosphere was very lively and fun. The only downsides is there is no parking close-by and with the restaurant and patio doors open, there were flies buzzing around us. Otherwise everything else was great!

    Immediately seated and waitress was pleasant and inviting. Service was quick and all orders were received within a reasonable time. Food was freshly cooked and nice and warm. You could tell they had not been sitting under a warmer light. Food was superb and ambiance was very pleasing. Enjoyed the cocktails and the entire afternoon there. Will definitely return soon.

    My wife and I went there July 21st of 2022 to celebrate our one year anniversary. We went there on Jazz night and had a great time. They have valet parking which is great for people not familiar with the area or ppl who don’t want to deal with the headache of searching for parking. Everything was great, neither my wife or I had any complaints. I would recommend making a reservation first.

    When we got got there the service was nice, we order our appetizer and that came out fairly early. We placed our order, and ate our appetizer. An hour and half went by for only the waiter to come over to us and said they were out of rotisserie chicken that I had order. I feel she should’ve told us earlier they were out. It was late so most of the restaurants were closing. They wasn’t trying to accommodate us at all until my husband went over and ask for them to discount or something for the appetizer we had ate. It was a terrible experience and we will not be back. Oh did I mention it was our anniversary 😡

    Not consistent. Been twice, and the food and Hurricane weren’t nearly as appetizing as my first visit a mere couple weeks prior. Food more good than not, yet definitely a little overpriced for the value and quality.

    I love the location and they really do have some nice outdoor seating. Menu was diverse and really not sure why the name of the restaurant continues to change yearly or if different owners just can’t seem to make it work. Just by 4th so when things are just too busy walk around the corner and enjoy Creole

    Food was very good and wait staff was very nice. Oddly they didn’t have coffee or tea available with brunch. Restrooms were a mess with no toilet paper. They would not split the check of (4) 2x2 so it’s up to the group to pay the person that paid with their credit card. Worthy of returning if they fix some issues, especially refusing to split checks.

    Saturday brunch was fabulous with bottomless mimosas. Our waitress was very attentive, despite the already 20% gratuity added to the bill (no matter how many guests). Bathrooms are further away than I’d like but I managed.

    When we arrived we were pointed to our seat, we sat for over 30 minutes before someone came over, our drinks from the bar took over 1 hour, it was flies all over the table and chair I was so disgusted with that, the doors were opened but still use some sort of safe fly repellent. The food was DELICIOUS!!!!!! 10/10 best tasting food I had in awhile I talked about it for days and I’ll definitely visit again because other than the wait the visit was great I enjoyed the ambiance and the live music.

    For there at 7:15pm. Was there for my fiancé bday. Ordered and the Food did not come out until 9:30 and I couldn’t enjoy it at the restaurant because I was rushed out because they were closed. I didn’t even eat or take the food with me. The appetizers came out after the entrees. Place is a beautiful but the service sucked for my first time there for a bday event. Can’t rate the food. The music was nice, but disappointed I couldn’t eat and enjoy a nice birthday meal and was rushed out because they said they was busy that’s why our food came out super late.

    Upon walking in the restaurant looked appealing and inviting. I passed it a few times and wanted to come in to visit. This had to be the worse restaurant experience I have ever had. I was greeted at the door 10 minutes after I walked in. While they were nice and smiling when they finally came, they were absolutely clueless as to how to retrieve me reservation. They sat me down and it took 20 minutes for someone to come ask for my order. She said it was a mix up. The restaurant was messy and dirty. The floor was dirty and slippery i almost fell two times. During the time waiting I asked a gentleman to retrieve the napkin, food and fork under the table we were sitting at. The music was over the top loud. There were a lot of staff there but there was a lack of organization. Some employees were sitting at the bar drinking. When we received our wings, we had no cutlery or napkins. The food was not bad, but I couldn’t get pass the other distractions. I decided to get the praline bread pudding and the waitress told me I shouldn’t and shook her head adamantly. She said it looked so yucky and sometimes they had good cooks and bad cooks and nobody could make that looked good. My son and I were shocked. We finally decided to leave. All in all terrible experience.

    Incredibly loud like a night club inside and out. There’s a dj. Witnessed an employee wearing noise canceling headphones!! This is a problem. Several employees while servicing customer are walking around with vap pens up to their mouths. This is absurd! No rules no decorum. Who’s in charge here. We had reservations and that’s a joke. Sunday is a brunch and appetizer menu only. Food came out at different temperatures. Grits were very tasty. French toast was burnt and turkey sausage links are a microwaved mess. Will never return.

    Made 5:30 reservations before a 7:30 show at Playhouse Square. Plenty of time, right? Wrong! Seated right away. Waited at least 15 minutes for a server to take drink and app order. Ordered dinner around 6:10. Mentioned twice that we had theatre tickets. At 6:50 we asked for a manager. Two of four dinner orders came out at 6:55, jambalaya that was cold and had crunchy rice. We asked for the bill and to go boxes at that point. Had the to go boxes and the bill before last meal came out at 7:00 which I declined and said I didn’t want it at that point and to take it off the bill. I was upset and didn’t want to inhale a $34 dollar meal in 5 minutes. Taking it with wasn’t an option, it was 85 degrees outside, couldn’t leave something in the car while we went to the show. Manager finally came over after second request. All she said was sorry, we make orders fresh. Took the one meal off, I think she thought we were just complaining to get free food. Gave the waitress a small tip, it wasn’t all her fault, but she wasn’t attentive, never got even one drink refill in and hour and a half. The place wasn’t even busy.
